HIV-TB news for November 2013

MSF Southern Africa Medical Unit (SAMU's) HIV-TB News for November 2013.

This edition is devoted to HIV and TB issues in children and adolescents, age groups that usually receive too little attention. The information presented here will hopefully help to strengthen prevention, diagnosis and management of HIV and TB, not just in our ‘vertical’ programs where HIV and TB are the main focus, but also in ‘non-vertical’ programmes that feature primary health care, nutrition, and hospital activities, in which HIV and TB may go undiagnosed and unmanaged in children and adolescents.
